Cape Clear Harbour Works Continue With New Slip & Pier Works

#capeclear – Construction work continues apace at Cape Clear island in West Cork as this latest photo posted via Twitter reveals. As Afloat previously reported in March, the works have involved the construction of a slipway; replacement of the Bull's Nose structure incorporating a storm gate and an extension to the end of Duffy's Pier; excavation, dredging and reclamation works including the construction of an armoured embankment at the seaward side of the new Bull's Nose structure.

A short aerial video of the installation of the massive 950–tonne precast concrete storm gate chamber is below.  Scroll down to view.
